First Autumnal Sunset

Delaware, Road Trip, States

We are in Delaware! Camped at Lums Pond State Park near Bear, DE. We pulled into this lovely park late this afternoon in time to do a little hiking. Lums Pond is the largest freshwater lake in the state, created in the early 1800’s by damming St. Georges Creek to power a sawmill and to fill the locks of the nearby Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. For dinner we heated up leftovers for crab omelet sandwiches and discovered that cocktail sauce is great with crab omelet! Then around sunset we headed out for another short hike. We found two nearby caches by flashlight! This first day of Autumn is the best day we’ve had on or Fitbits in a while, we’ve walked nearly seven miles today!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
